Huge congratulations to Susan Corless of Northampton AC, for picking up a team silver medal at the Berlin stage of the Archery World Cup, alongside team mates Sarah Moon and Ella Gibson.
The Great Britain Ladies Compound team made it all the way to the gold medal match, where they narrowly missed out to a very on form Turkish team.
This was only Susan’s second World Cup appearance, and the result has moved Susan up in the World Archery rankings by 78 places to 65th. And helped to moved the Great Britain Ladies Compound team up from 8th to 5th.
Congratulations also to long time county archer James Mason, for winning the mixed team gold medal alongside Ella Gibson. An excellent display in the final against Slovenia ended a long seven year wait for a GB gold medal at a World Cup event.
Congratulations to Susan Corless of Northampton Archery Club for becoming Northamptonshire Local Sportswoman of the Year 2018. She has won the award for the second year running. This follows on from winning the award for Northampton Local Sportswoman of the Year just last month.
Well done also to Jack Sharpe from Wellingborough OAC, who was shortlisted for Disabled Sportsperson of the Year. Unfortunately he didn’t win the overall award, but it’s really great to have had two county archers in the running for these local awards.
